withdrew. Two lioura afterward, the

perortent nn itlde-dc-cumn. The Chan
tcllorgrictcd him very nffaldy, Jielngcon

Prime, very uneasy, made the lanio ox
ciisenf not having yet drawn it up, and
defcrresl tho matter till the morrow. Next
morning tho ulde-elc-canip reappeared.
This time llismarek was calmer, but again
made the same excuse, saying that before

bound to pay n vMt.

Mr. W. C.Dodge was the first speaker to
occupy tho lloor. lie was piepared with
n pile of docuinenls nnd papers showing
why tlio bill should not ho pu"cd, After
rinding tho sections of tho bill ng.iIusL
which the pisiplu proposed tn protest, Mr.
Dodge described tlio origin of tin bill. It
had not originated In the bruin of Captain
Hossell, as somuof tlio members present
thought, lint bad first been suggested by
Mr. Jniesdcll of Feklngton ut a meeting
of the Hoard of Trade. Tho matter was
discussed then, 1ml no steps taken toward
lccniume tiding It to thu Commissioners.
Mr. Dodge, however, had discussed tint
question with Commissioner Douglassiuul
loiinii mm very mticii in luvorol it.
Mr. Deslgo was oposed to tho mpattm
becnuse it was unjust to tliu citizens of
northeast Washington. For over twenty
years they had been paying taxes Into thu
general fund uud had received no lienllts.
J he northwest bos rucelvtsl the biggest
share of the money, und now when It hx
securest nil its improvements out of Iho
general fund the northeast is left out and
will lie compelled to pay again for tlio im
provements to Its own streets.
Mr. Dodge then made the point,
that the people on both sides of ,i
street would liavetu agree topiy for (iir.
improvement, nnd it would lie tiumd Hint
they would seldom agree, "I'ho fait Is,"
he said, "it will permit Truiwdell to Hit
asphalt pavements in Feklngton at half
prlco whero there are no lieoplo on either
side iif tbeslri'ct." "The general public,"
the speaker said, "aro under an erromsms
impicssioii Hint tlio Government supplies
emu half of tlio amount ncccssiry tositfi
lort tho District. This is untrue for it is
required to piovido un amount equal t
the amount of taxes derived fiom tin peo
ple of the Dislrld."
At this point Mr. Dodcu referrcl to hK
